I'm not a fan of curved monitors, but probably only because I am an old fart. The ultra-wide looks a lot better than two standard monitors to me though.

Worth bearing in mind that replacement Z-series boards are pretty expensive now, most seem to be more expensive at EOL than they were at release. So if you bought a working 2nd hand CPU+mobo, but the...

Does seem gratuitous to have Chaos as DLC... I don't know my warhammer fantasy lore, but if it's anything like 40K then they're integral to the whole thing.

From Scan:

960GB BX200 221.5
1TB 850 EVO 280.62
